North Coast Open Studios presents our second annual Art Night, kicking off the two weekend event with an evening of Open Studios, the night before the main event starts.

We understand that some folks work over the weekend, or have other engagements, or maybe just want time to see more art — NCOS Art Night is for you!

Online and in the NCOS guidebook, you’ll find a geographic listing of all of the participating artists, who are planning to open for this special Friday evening event. Next to their names, their listing number will tell you which location is theirs on the Friday Art Night maps. Further into the guidebook, you’ll find listings for each of these artists (alphabetically, by region), with a description of the artist’s work, address, directions to their studio (if needed), contact information, and a representative image of their work.

Please keep in mind that not every NCOS participating artist has chosen to open for the Art Night. The artists who will be open are in this section of the guidebook.

It should also be noted that NCOS Art Night overlaps with Trinidad Art Nights, also happening on Friday, June 1, from 6-9pm! A visit to Trinidad, on this night, is a great opportunity to catch live music and performances, open galleries, and a selection of North Coast Open Studios artists.

Don’t forget to get a head start on your 2018 NCOS BINGO game (on page 9), for a chance to win a gift certificate from one of our sponsors.
